Comment (by Darryl Green <…>):

 Sorry about formatting - try this....

 // possible "fix" to apply in make_variant_over
 typedef boost::mpl::vector<> empty; typedef
 boost::mpl::insert_range<empty, boost::mpl::end<empty>::type,
 Sequence>::type ExtensibleSequence;

 // example
 #include <string>
 #include <boost/variant.hpp>
 #include <boost/mpl/joint_view.hpp>
 #include <boost/mpl/insert_range.hpp>

 typedef boost::variant<int> v1;
 typedef boost::variant<std::string> v2;
 typedef boost::make_variant_over<boost::mpl::joint_view<v1::types,
 v2::types>::type>::type v3; // FAILS - requires Extensible Sequence
 //typedef boost::variant<int, std::string> v3; // OK (obviously)
 //typedef boost::make_variant_over<boost::mpl::insert_range<v1::types,
 //boost::mpl::end<v1::types>::type, v2::types::type>::type>::type v3; //
 OK (so types is probably an Extensible Sequence as insert_range works on

 int main(int argc, char *argv[])
         v1 a = 1;
         v2 b = "2";
         v3 c = a;
         return boost::get<int>(c);
